      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

      PLEASE READ - Reversing upgrade   02/23/2017

      We have found that this new upgrade is somewhat of a disaster.  We are finding lots of glitches in being able to post and administer the forum.  Additionally, there are new costs associated with the upgrade that we simply cannot afford.  As a result, we have decided to reverse course and go back to the previous version of our software.  Since this will involve restoring it from a backup, we will lose posts that have been added since January 30 or possibly even some before that.    If you started a topic during that time, we urge you to make backups of your posts and you will need to start the topics over again after the change.  You can simply paste the copies of your posts that you created at that point.    If you joined the forum this month, you will need to re-register since your membership will be lost along with the posts.  Since you have a concealed password, we cannot simply restore your membership for you.   We are going to backup as much as we can so that it will reduce inconvenience for our members.  Unfortunately we cannot back everything up since much will be incompatible with the old version of our software.  We apologize for the confusion and regret the need to do this even though it is not viable to continue with this version of the software.   We plan to begin the process tomorrow evening and, if it goes smoothly, we shouldn't be offline for very long.  However, since we have not done this before, we are not sure how smoothly it will go.  We ask your patience as we proceed.   EDIT: I have asked our hosting service to do the restore at 9 PM Central time and it looks like it will go forward at that time.  Please prepare whatever you need to prepare so that we can restore your topics when the forum is stable again.

Problem is IMSPY

8 posts in this topic

Hello ...

 

I have a popup called IMSPY that wants me to register, etc. I did not invite this SW onto my computer. I have used CWShredder, SpyBot-S&D, Adaware, and Spysweeper. None of them find the problem SW.

 

Can anyone help with this?

 

Thank you in advanced,

 

TBatt

Hi TBatt,

 

Can you download HijackThis please? There's a link in my signature.

 

Create a new folder and place the program into it. Run it, and click on Scan. When the scan has completed (only a few secondsat worst), the Scan button will change to Save Log. Click that, save the logfile, and a Notepad session will open up. Copy and paste the entire contents into this thread, and we'll analyse it for you.

 

Please don't, whatever you do, have it fix anything at this stage as much of what it lists is either harmless or essential to the running of your system.

Thank you Nemmisa...

 

So far, this seems to have worked. I could not find the programs listed in the program list, so I couldn't remove them, but I unchecked the boxes in Spybot S&D and so far IMSPY has not re-shown its ugly head.

 

I appreciate the help,

 

TBatt

Hi Tbatt, and sorry for the huge delay in getting back to you :weep:

 

Can you close all applications, leaving only HijackThis running, and place a check against the following items:

 

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = about:blank

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {00D6A7E7-4A97-456f-848A-3B75BF7554D7} - C:\PROGRA~1\PERFEC~1\BHO\PERFEC~1.DLL (file missing)

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {029CA12C-89C1-46a7-A3C7-82F2F98635CB} - C:\Program Files\Kontiki\bin\bh304181.dll

O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {F2BE9B16-EE6B-6E0C-024B-D8A6C6FA1551} - (no file)

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [] C:\Program Files\winbas12.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [imSpy] C:\Program Files\imspy.exe

O16 - DPF: {AB29A544-D6B4-4E36-A1F8-D3E34FC7B00A} (WTHoster Class) - http://install.wildtangent.com/bgn/partner...stx/install.cab

 

Uninstall SpywareBeGone using Add/Remove programs if it exists. If it doesn't then you'll need to fix this line also:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [spyware Begone] C:\spywarebegone\SpywareBeGone.exe -FastScan

 

Disable, or uninstall SpySweeper, as it's known to cause problems. It's identified by this line in your log:

O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [spySweeper] C:\Program Files\Webroot\Spy Sweeper\SpySweeper.exe /0

 

Do you use peer-to-peer file sharing? If not, fix these lines also:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [P2P Networking] C:\WINDOWS\System32\P2P Networking\P2P Networking.exe /AUTOSTART

O16 - DPF: {1D6711C8-7154-40BB-8380-3DEA45B69CBF} (Web P2P Installer) -

 

Click on Fix Checked, and exit HijackThis. Reboot your system and post a fresh log, and we'll take another look.
